Don't Worry About Feeling So Lazy
In Summer? It May Be Good For Yon
Do you worry about feeling
lazy in the summertime? If so,
don't let your conscience bother
you. More leisurely aqtivjty, both
at work and at play, means not
only less physical discomfort,
but makes you far less vulnera
ble to accidents and injuries.
According to studies of hot
weather accidents by the Insth
tute for Safer Living of the A
merican Mutual Liability Insur
ance Company, over exertion of
ten plays an Important part in
drownings, sunstroke, heat ex
haustion and many 'accidental
injuries around the home or
while on Vacation.
Heavy physical activity in the
hot sUn can be really dangerous
unless you are conditioned for It
by an outdoor occupation. TTiose
who work or play outdoors only
occasionally should approach
these pursuits with a certain de
gree of laziness.
Gardening and lawn work are
among the most common activi
ties leading to over- exertion,
which In turn, may lead to sun
stroke or perhaps an injury
caused by thoughless use of a
garden tool. Take such work in
small doses on hot sunny days
and preferably save your heavi
est work for cloudy days or coo)
evon'ngs. Always wear a head
covering when gardening or
when doing lawn work in the
Adults especially, have little
business Indulging in such stre
nuo.us sports as baseball or ten
nis when the mercury .is soaring,
unless, of course, they are pro
fessionals. Wise golfers will take
short breathers after complting
each hole. Children and teen
agers should be encouraged not
to over indulge in the more ac
tive sports and games.
A factor causing many swim
ming accidents is staying in the
water too long when you are un
accustomed to it. This leads to
exhaustion. Many fail to reach
shore. Rest frequently, especial
ly when swimming in deep wa
Danger always lurks in the
woods for tired hikers. Fatigue
induces thoughtless actions
which may produce such mis
haps as sprained ankles, con
tacts with poison ivy, encounter
with a poisonous snake, a bad
fall, heat exhaustion or even
getting lost. Plan your hike so
| you will reach a good stopping
place before you are worn out.
I Fatigue while driving on long
auto trips, accounts for many
fatal highway accidents, so here
is another occasion where tak
ing it easy pays dividends in
family safety. Frequent coffee or
rest stops are a must for vaca
tioning auto travelers. However,
being relaxed behind the wheel
does not mean that you should
not stay alert at all times.
These are only a few of num
erous activities where a bit on'
the lazy side may save your Mfe,
alter thethermometer hits 80 or
90. So don't hurry. Chances are
you'll accomplish quite as much
by mixing rest with elbow
grease. -Vy -V?
